Catalina Canyon Resort has a great website and the photographer they chose did a great job making the place look so very much better than it does in real life. That not to say it looks bad in real life -- it just doesn't look like the pictures. The outside of the "resort" is clean but it looks like an... More

I've been planning a wonderful weekend for my mom, who's always wanted to see Catalina Island for years. We booked 2 rooms at Catalina Canyon Resort. To our surprise, the rooms AND hotel property, looked nothing how it was presented online :-( terrible! Their going thru remodeling, which was not disclosed when we reserved our rooms. Not to mention how... More

Upon arrival of our group of 20 people we had 5 rooms booked. Only one room was ready and one was actually cancelled by mistake. The front desk manager had the nerve to argue with my mother in law, rather than accept the mistake and fix it immediately. Once we were all settled in we decided to hit the pool/hot... More

The property was average, an okay pool area, minus the day they were cutting the palm trees and had to cover it. The restaurant was a little better than average. Staff was accommodating. My biggest gripes: 1) the room was like a dungeon, though I realized this was only our room, all the other rooms has a pane glass door... More

The hotel was clean, beautiful and very accomodating. Our room was beautifully remodeled and overlooked the pool and restaurant area. The pool was perfect but jets weren't working in the hot tub. The spa was being remodeled so it was closed. So comfortable and quiet. Front desk people and shuttle drivers are so friendly and very helpful. Stayed 5 days,... More

The rooms have been renovated but it wasn't very clean and some things in our room were broken or not working properly! The staff and shuttle drivers were very nice and helpful. The hotel is a little distance from the main area of restaurants and shopping which was nice because it was very quiet, but a little bit of a... More

We decided on a last minute mini vacation. We had never been to Catalina and decided we wanted to visit. We needed a place that was great for kids and a pool was a must! Catalina Resort and Spa was the only hotel on Avalon with a pool. We decided to book it. After I booked it, I made the... More

We wanted to take visiting family to Catalina. Knowing that summer prices are high and last minute availability is low, we were happy to find 2 affordable rooms available at this hotel. The "resort" is close to town, albeit up a steep hill. When we arrived, our rooms were not ready, so they offered to store our bags. Unfortunately, their... More

Pet friendly hotel with pool/hot tub, ping pong table, and free shuttle to town and ferry. 2 Queen room with refrigerator and microwave was very tight - barely had walking space. Room had balcony overlooking pool area with a slight view of the ocean which was nice because the door can be left open for the natural ventilation instead of... More

It is too bad that most of my review consists of negatives, and the only reason this hotel received an average rating was that there are SOME saving graces. The first line of any experience is the staff, and the staff here was comprised by robots. I say this because they had their lines down at the front desk, "hello,... More
